Arizona High School to Female Students: Boys Get Bad Grades Because of How You Dress


An Arizona high school had to apologize this week for what some say was an alarmingly sexist poster (below) hung in the school library, ABC News reports.

The poster, illustrated with cartoons, states girls who dress "pretty cute" will only be seen as "meat" by boys, who will be distracted and get bad grades. Girls will end up with these dumb boys anyway because "he thought you looked HOT," but will have to support them because they won't be able to get a job.

"I don’t get offended easily, but this definitely crossed the line for me," senior Alissa Adams says. She complained to the librarian who put the poster up, but was ignored.

This in up in my school & my librarian claims I'm the only one offended by it?? SERIOUSLY? #DRHSfeminism #Feminism

Adams tells KNXV that by the end of the day, most of her class was angry about the poster. It was taken down Thursday after another student complained to the principal. "[The] hanging of the poster was inappropriate and very poor judgment on behalf of the librarian," ABC quotes a Desert Ridge High School spokesperson as saying. 

"I think they were trying to be funny but they just went about it all wrong," Adams tells KNXV.

The poster was made at the school, KSAZ reports, but the school claims it doesn't know who made it, and the librarian just "found it lying around."
